U.S. finds China tool chest imports hurt U.S. makers, duties to remain

WASHINGTON, Jan 3 (Reuters) - The U.S. International Trade Commission on Wednesday said it found tool chests imported from China harm U.S. producers, paving the way for the Commerce Department to keep anti-subsidy and anti-dumping duties on Chinese exporters for five years.

The case was brought by Waterloo Industries Inc of Sedalia, Missouri, a subsidiary of Fortune Brands Home & Security Inc , which says it accounts for more than half of domestic production of tool chests and cabinets. In 2016, imports of tool chests from China totaled $990 million, Commerce Department data show.
